Garmin-Lowrance GPS

3 posts in this topic

I have been looking at the Garmin 162 and 182. Still not clear to me what the difference is? Also, the Lowrance 2400 and 1600...again not sure the difference. I want a GPS that will give me mapping functions...maps that also display contour as well as position. I fish Rainy Lake more then any other lake. Any thoughts. Thanks much.

You are not going to find many options when it comes to contours for Rainey Lake. And what is there is marginal at best. Shoreline detail is better but you'll find that limited to the US side.
As far as differences between units, I have not seen a Garmin 182 but the 162 has a 240 VP screen and 2.5 Mb of internal memory.
Lowrance units the 160o has a 160 VP screen and 2 Mb of internal memory that can only take info from the Map Create 4 series of CD's. The 2400 has a 240 VP screen and uses the flash cards instead of internal memory. This gives it more flexibility when it coms to info. It uses the Map Create 6 software or it can use the Navionics Hot Map chips.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
